This is most likely drain off water from the automatic defrost cycle.

There is a removable drip pan under the refrigerator that can get filled with lint and mildew and keep the water from evaporating properly. There is also a fan which pulls air across the condenser coils but also serves to help evaporate the defrost water.

Remove the drip pan and clean it out, clean off the coils with a brush and vaccum, and be sure the bottom fan is running. That should solve your problem with ZERO dollars out of your pocket.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

Maytag Fridge MFF2558VEM is leaking water from bottom of unit. Suspect a clogged drain hole. Need to access the drip pan and clear drain hole. Drip pan is not behind the toeplate grill at the front


Fridge has a design issue. Duckbill drain valve clogs. They have a new ptrap drain replacement but you have to ask for it, as customer service will deny a problem exists. Here is the service bulletin which was supposed to be for internal use only! https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzIiBNwRIV4NNWJNNmx0andROGs/edit

Leaking water in front left side


hi tom
yes the drain tube may be glogged and when the unit defrosts the water just flows to the bottom of the un it then eventally out, if you have a clogged drain, you will see water on a pretty reglar basis
8, 10, 12 hours
the drain pipe is behind the back wall on the freezer, if you take that off you will se an ice build up, remove that ice and clear the drain tube
you may need to pull out the machine and remove the tube from the back to ensure that it is entirley clear

Older maytag fridge side by side.


Buk, there's supposed to be a drain pan under your fridge to catch the water that comes from the drain tube. The water that's coming out is supposed to be there (only, it's supposed to be caught by the drain pan)... it's the water that's made when your fridge defrosts itself. If you plug the tube, the water will back up inside the fridge , puddle up in the bottom and eventually leak out through the door.

You should order a drain pan for it. Here's a link to one online. After you have it in place, you won't have to worry about it anymore. The water that collects there will simply evaporate back into the air.

Clogged fridge drain tube


The drain is behind the back panel in the freezer at the bottom. Sounds like it is frozen over which is pretty common. Will need to remove panel and thaw out drain by running hot water down. You can use a putty knife to break up ice first. Make sure you get all ice around the drain above and below the thin aluminum tray at the bottom. After the drain is free don't be alarmed if you get some water on the floor because the drain pan may not hold all of the water you ran down the drain. Not anything you can do to prevent this on this model.
